Yes! I'm Irritated!!!

I was irritated when I had to wait in the waiting room at the dr.’s office for over 1 & 1/2 hours today.  The bright poster I read warned everyone that they would have to reschedule if they were 15 minutes late.  So... my time is apparently not as important as the doctors.  
          Yes, I was irritated!

I was definitely annoyed when we asked the receptionist to explain some of the charges on the statement and she left us more puzzled than when we started.  She didn’t have a clue where to find the answers.  Goodness gracious!  If no one in the office knows.... who does????  
          Yes, I was annoyed!

I was pretty aggravated when we were lied to.  After waiting over an hour, we were assured that I was next in line.  We were told that others may go in first, but that was because they would be seeing another doctor.   That’s when it happened.... I knew I shouldn’t have asked...but I had to know.  After a short conversation with a lady sitting across from me, I found out that she was told the same thing.  The problem.... her doctor was the same as mine.  Let’s just say I was not next in line. 
          Yes, I was aggravated!

I was pretty ticked off when I finally saw the doctor and he spent a total of about 5 minutes with me.  Okay, okay...  I might be exaggerating a little bit.   It was probably more like 2 minutes!!  We were whisked out the door before I knew what was happening.  It wasn’t until I was almost home that my mind finally realized that my opportunity for questions was whisked out the door with me.  
          Yes, I was pretty ticked off!

I’m upset and frustrated because my foot hasn’t completely healed.    And to top it all off...   My favorite shoes can't be worn.   Flip-flops are a big fat NO! NO!  
          Yes, I'm upset & frustrated!


  1. Awe I can feel your irritation...and yes rightly so. I too never understood how in the world a Dr. can get that far behind..or if he/she is running that late how about a phone call to let us know! Well hopefully by now you are more relaxed and not letting this get to you any's really not worth it.

  2. I'm so sorry. (I beat my audiologist to the office this morning, although it sounds like your experience was much more frustrating.) Did I mention that I'm sorry?

  5. It's funny that you posted this today, since my daughter and I experienced the very same thing. Our appointment was at 10 and we got there at 9:45 and we were the only ones in the waiting room. In walks patient 2, 3, and 4. Patients 2 and 3 were called in before us and it was now 10:30. We were finally brought to our room at 10:45, doctor came in at 11:00 and I was paying the bill at 11:20. As I was driving to work, it was a teacher work day, with my daughter, we realized we didn't get the name of the ENT that she needed to see in the next week. I wonder what would happen if I made my parents wait when we scheduled a parent teacher conference...
